Adafruit Weekly Editorial Round-Up: Black History Month, Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, PyPortal Winamp MP3 Player, & more!
ADAFRUIT WEEKLY EDITORIAL ROUND-UP
We’ve got so much happening here at Adafruit that it’s not always easy to keep up! Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. Each week we’ll be posting a handy round-up of what we’ve been up to, ranging from learn guides to blog articles, videos, and more.
We’ve been sharing stories and figures that honor African Americans and their contributions to this country all month long. Check out our blog for who and what we’ve highlighted as Black History Month comes to a close.
Bring back the good ol’ days of Llama whippin’ fun.
This project will turn your PyPortal into an MP3 player to play your favorite tunes with the familiar Winamp look. Create and manage multiple JSON playlists and rock out to whichever one fits the mood.
Take it a step further by choosing a custom Winamp skin and convert it for use on your PyPortal. Read more.
